of that that -- many variations of that. the united states is the dominant military and economic power in the world. from that, would he derive many benefits and incur many burdens. the first thing we have to get clear is that despite our immense power and our immense wealth as a nation, we do not have the caseyty to solve every problem in the world. not every problem in the world is an american problem requiring an exclusively american solution. problems have to be solved locally. we have we believe in the right of self governorance. it's in the first paragraph of the declaration of >> yes. >> self government means other people have the themselves. >> as i travel around the world -- not to the extent that you have, i am shocked by the extent to which people around the world feel that america has contributed to many of the problems of the world. or is in a unique position to solve all of the problems. inevitable and has been true. dominance creates a sense of dependency and dependency always creates to some degree a sense of resentment. by those who are dependent upon and those who they depend on.
